A psalm of Dawiḏ; when he was in the wilderness of Yahuḏah.

1 O Elohim, You are my Ĕl;
I earnestly seek You;
My being has thirsted for You;
My flesh has longed for You
In a dry and thirsty land without water.

2 Therefore I have had a vision of You In the qodesh place,
To see Your power and Your esteem.

3 Because Your kindness is better than life,
My lips praise You.

4 Therefore I baraḵ You while I live;
In Your Name I lift up my hands.

5 My being is satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth praises You with singing lips.

6 When I remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You in the night watches.

7 For You have been my help,
And in the shadow of Your wings I sing.

8 My being has closely followed You;
Your right hand upholds me.

9 But those who seek to destroy my life,
Go into the lower parts of the earth.

10 They are handed over
To the power of the sword;
They become a portion for jackals.

11 But let the sovereign rejoice in Elohim;
Let everyone who swears by Him exult;
For the mouth of those speaking lies are stopped.
